After having fun digging up acorns, a little dog decides to bury them all again.
I love this book! Even though you would never guess this based on the cover and OPAC, it is a book about fall. One of my favorite books about fall, in fact. More accurately, it is one of my favorite books takes place in fall but has an actual plot. The reader can see apple trees, autumn leaves, acorns, a squirrel and pumpkins within the illustrations. However, the story is about a little dog who has fun hunting for acorns. When the little dog learns that she has raided squirrel’s winter acorn stash, she plays a new game called Put Back the Acorn.
The book is an excellent readaloud. The large colorful illustrations can definitely be seen from either the front or the back of a storytime room. The book’s only downside is that now I want my own cute little dog. It would be best if it looked exactly like the one in the book.
